The New York Times: Text messages cost carriers virtually nothingNo shit....I think we new that. But thanks for reminding us.
From John Brownlee and BB Gadgets... Click here for his full post and NYT story.
The New York Times has a good piece up on the heavy curtain of secrecy that surrounds mobile carriers' profit margins on text messaging. In short, they're bilking you... but you already knew that. But here's a pretty simple explanation of why the text messages you pay twenty cents each to send costs the carrier basically nothing:
A text message initially travels wirelessly from a handset to the closest base-station tower and is then transferred through wired links to the digital pipes of the telephone network, and then, near its destination, converted back into a wireless signal to traverse the final leg, from tower to handset. In the wired portion of its journey, a file of such infinitesimal size is inconsequential. Srinivasan Keshav, a professor of computer science at the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, said: “Messages are small. Even though a trillion seems like a lot to carry, it isn’t.”Thanks John for your read on the whole deal. Visit BB Gadgets for more gadget news.
Perhaps the costs for the wireless portion at either end are high — spectrum is finite, after all, and carriers pay dearly for the rights to use it. But text messages are not just tiny; they are also free riders, tucked into what’s called a control channel, space reserved for operation of the wireless network.
That’s why a message is so limited in length: it must not exceed the length of the message used for internal communication between tower and handset to set up a call. The channel uses space whether or not a text message is inserted.
Stanley Carter surrendered Friday after police took a dog to search the home in Plains Township, a suburb of Wilkes-Barre about 100 miles north of Philadelphia. He was charged with several counts of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal trespass.
"When he came down from the attic, he was wearing my daughter's pants and my sweat shirt and sneakers," homeowner Stacy Ferrance said. "From what I gather, he was helping himself to my home, eating my food and stealing my clothes."-snip-
"When we were going through the inventory of what he did take, we found a note labeled 'Stanley's Christmas List' of all the items he had removed from the residence and donated to himself," Smith said.Link to full craziness

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration is seriously considering "orderly" bankruptcy as a way of dealing with the desperately ailing U.S. auto industry.
White House press secretary Dana Perino said Thursday, "There's an orderly way to do bankruptcies that provides for more of a soft landing. I think that's what we would be talking about."
President George W. Bush, asked about an auto rescue plan during an appearance before a private group, said he hadn't decided what he would do.
But he, like Perino, spoke of the idea of bankruptcies organized by the federal government as a possible way to go.

PAW PAW, Mich. – A human-sized heart found at a southwestern Michigan car wash has investigators wondering whether it came from a person or an animal. The organ was discovered in a corner of a manual wash bay at Soapy's Car Wash, Paw Paw police said. The owner of the business found it Monday on the floor of the bay, according to WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids and WWMT-TV in Kalamazoo.
Police first took the heart to an animal clinic, where a veterinarian was unable to determine its origin. The next stop was a local cardiologist, who said while it was "consistent in size to a human heart," he could not make a conclusive determination as to its source, said police Chief Patrick W. Alspaugh.
The chief took the organ Tuesday to Lansing's Sparrow Hospital, where forensic scientists were to examine it.
"If it's a human heart, that prompts the question, 'Then where's the body?'" Alspaugh told the Kalamazoo Gazette.
He said he didn't know when the forensic scientists will give him their findings.
If it turns out that the heart came from an animal, it would not be the first time that someone has left animal parts at the car wash
The owner told police that animal parts had been left before at the car wash, but never a heart.

Read the previous post. Every time Bush opens his cake-hole, the Dow plunges.
Just remember idiots actually voted for this asshole.
Dow closes down about 680 points
Major plunge marks the fourth worst daily drop in history of the indexNEW YORK - A litany of bad economic news has snuffed out Wall Street’s five-day rally, sending stocks falling sharply as investors realized anew how troubled the U.S. economy really is.
Confirmation that the nation is in a recession followed reports of only a modest gain in holiday shopping sales, and that prompted investors to begin unloading stocks. Downbeat data on manufacturing and construction spending added to the market’s gloom.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 679 points, wiping out more than half the 1,276 points it added during a five-day rally built on investors’ budding optimism about the economy.
---Snip...as if today's drop just now confirmed that we are in a recession. We've been in one for 18 months now!...
Read all the sicking details @ MSNBC.com
WASHINGTON: President George W. Bush expressed regret Monday that the global financial crisis has cost jobs and shrinking retirement accounts and said he will support more government intervention if needed to ease the recession.
"I'm sorry it's happening, of course," Bush said in a wide-ranging interview with ABC's "World News," which was airing Monday. "Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s.

Inc. is mobilizing its store managers and department supervisors around
the country to warn that if Democrats win power in November, they'll
likely change federal law to make it easier for workers to unionize
companies -- including Wal-Mart.
In recent weeks, thousands of Wal-Mart store managers
and department heads have been summoned to mandatory meetings at which
the retailer stresses the downside for workers if stores were to be
According to about a dozen Wal-Mart employees who
attended such meetings in seven states, Wal-Mart executives claim that
employees at unionized stores would have to pay hefty union dues while
getting nothing in return, and may have to go on strike without
compensation. Also, unionization could mean fewer jobs as labor costs

It is a strange dynamic. Can you even believe that some posters want to bring back the post limit? Can you believe others want to ban anyone who isn't 'happy that Obama is the Democratic candidate?
Can anyone dislike Obama without being accused of being a Troll or a GOP plant? Apparently if you don't feel the way they do then you're not a Democrat.

Don S. Davis: 1942-2008

With great sadness we must report that veteran actor Don S. Davis passed away on June 29, 2008. He was 65 years old.
Don co-starred on Stargate SG-1 for the show's first seven years, helping to launch the enduring science fiction franchise. Davis played Major General George Hammond, base commander and a father figure to many of the show's characters.
He is also well-known for his portrayal of Major Garland Briggs in Twin Peaks.
Off-screen, Don was beloved by the show's cast and crew. He departed the show in 2003 due to a medical condition that restricted his workload, but returned for several guest appearances on SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis in the following years. Don worked hard to improve his health, and continued to work both on screen and off until his death.

THE remains of a woman have been found sitting in front of her TV - 42 years after she was reported missing.
Hedviga Golik, who was born in 1924, had apparently made herself a cup of tea before sitting in her favourite armchair in front of her black and white television.
Croatian police said she was last seen by neighbours in 1966, when she would have been 42 years old.
Her neighbours thought she had moved out of her flat in the capital, Zagreb.
But she was found by police and bailiffs who had broken in to help the authorities establish who owned the flat.
A police spokesman said: "So far, we have no idea how it is possible that someone officially reported missing so long ago was not found before in the same apartment she used to live in.
"When officers went there, they said it was like stepping into a place frozen in time.
"The cup she had been drinking tea from was still on a table next to the chair she had been sitting in and the house was full of things no one had seen for decades. Nothing had been disturbed for decades, even though there were more than a few cobwebs in there."
Neighbours were shocked by the discovery.
Jadranka Markic was nine when Hedviga "vanished".
She said: "I still remember her. She was a quiet woman who kept herself to herself but was polite. We all thought that she had just moved out and gone to live with relatives."

I just don't.
But one of the real reasons I'm still pissed is how the DU Administrators and Moderators allowed all the Hillary Clinton supporters to be hunted and purged from DU.
Shame on them. Now, they have a board that reeks of nut-fucks, the posts about Tim Russert's death prove that they've allowed the board to descend into utter madness.
So I'm disillusioned. I'm unhappy and well if being a Liberal or Progressive means behaving like the loudmouth mean assholes at DU, I'm happy to hand in my Liberal or Progressive card and become an independent.
What I don't get is they are more willing to accept a Republican who says they support Obama than a lifetime Democrat who won't fall in line.
I'll have no part in it.

Death spurs headphone debate
May 15, 2008VANCOUVER -- The death of a pedestrian in Cranbrook, B.C., on Tuesday has raised the question of how loud is too loud when it comes to listening to iPods and other personal music players.
Isaiah Otieno, a 23-year-old student, was killed when he was struck and dragged by a helicopter that crashed to the ground as he was walking to the mailbox.
Eyewitnesses reported that Mr. Otieno seemed completely unaware that he was in danger and a friend told reporters that he often listened to music through earbuds (in-ear headphones) with the hood of his sweatshirt pulled up over his head.
Concern over safe use of headphones is growing. Last year, Carl Kruger, a Democratic state senator from New York proposed a bill to ban the use of iPods and other electronic devices while crossing the street.Link to full story.

A Fort Worth man trying to scratch an itch on his back used a revolver and accidentally shot himself.
Jorge Espinal, 44, was drinking beer and playing poker around 3 a.m. Sunday in his home in the 3500 block of Montague Street, when he got up from the table and walked into another room, said Fort Worth police Lt. Kenneth Dean.
“He told officers he had an itch on his back and grabbed the first thing he could get a hold of, which was a revolver,” Lt. Dean said. “The gun went off."
Mr. Espinal went back and told his buddies that he shot himself. “They didn’t believe him until they saw the blood coming down his back,” Lt. Dean said.
Mr. Espinal was taken to an area hospital, where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Wal-Mart Leaves Kids Out in the Cold
NFL superstar Andre Johnson and his charity got stiffed by Wal-Mart and it all involves water and ice. Yes, ice.
Here's how it went down -- Johnson ordered 750 bicycles to be given to underprivileged kids at an event sponsored by the Andre Johnson Non Profit Foundation. In return for the purchase, Wal-Mart agreed to donate water and ice for the May 3 event.
But there was a problem.
Johnson had ordered the bikes in various sizes for both older and younger kids. But the bikes didn't comes as ordered (more small than large), so Johnson only purchased 677 -- at full retail price, mind you.
Well, Wal-Mart didn't take too kindly to this, so on the day of the event (it was 84 degrees out) they wouldn't fork over the water or the ice. AJ's people were told that Wal-Mart would not be donating the ice because they hadn't purchased the 73 remaining bikes. That's cold!
Wal-Mart is trying to rectify the situation. They tell TMZ, "We are reaching out to the Andre Johnson Foundation as we speak to rectify the situation. It's disappointing that this happened."

The surreal mistake happened because the ex-husband's cellphone didn't have an specific character from the Turkish alphabet: the letter "ı" or closed i. While "i" is available in all phones in Turkey—where this happened—the closed i apparently doesn't exist in most of the terminals in that country.
The use of "i" resulted in an SMS with a completely twisted meaning: instead of writing the word "sıkısınca" he wrote "sikisince." Ramazan wanted to write "You change the topic every time you run out of arguments" (sounds familiar enough) but what Emine read was, "You change the topic every time they are fucking you" (sounds familiar too.)--------------------------------------------
---well the result, she showed the message to her father, when Ramazan came over to apologize they stabbed him, then Ramazan found her and stabbed her and then killed himself.
Best argument for ignoring the whole texting trend I've heard.

MUENSTER, Germany - Petra the black swan has been reunited with her beloved swan-shaped paddleboat after a failed romance with a real bird.
Officials at awhere Petra has been spending the winter took her to a nearby lake Friday and released her next to the paddleboat — shaped like a giant white swan.
Petra became so attached to the boat back in 2006 that she refused to leave its side. When winter came around, she and the boat were taken into the zoo.
In recent months, Petra had struck up a relationship with a real white swan. However, he abandoned her last weekend — and officials decided to reunite her with the boat, which was returned to its owner only last week.
Zoo director Joerg Adler said it was too early to tell whether Petra will stay with the boat this time.Link to Yahoo original story

I will do my best to live up to the honor of being on the list. I will work hard to make it to the top 10 who are targeted for banning. That would be the ultimate achievement.

I think posting on Liberal and Progressive political boards has jumped the shark. I think just about all of them have lost their fucking minds. I've decided I don't want to be a part of that crazy ass shit. The decline of Liberalness and Progressive mentality on the WWW was swift and complete. The destruction was awesome. They've made it so that it is embarassing to say you post on the Liberal sites. I think the rise of the Independent is where it is at.
I was always struck by Liberals and Progressives refusing to lockstep behind an idea or a candidate. But then I see just that where Obama is concerned. Obama is just that, a politician who talks out of both sides of his mouth just like all the other muthafuckas out there. He's no different, he's just black and that ain't different enough from where I stand. From what I see, Obama's supporters will be the ones to sink his ship. I can't see how OBama can beat McCrazy fuck in the GE. I hear all the yes we can, hope, change, let it sink, and all I see it as is bullshit. Bullshit, Bullshit, Bullshit. OMG. BULLSHIT. I'll give him credit though, he's got so many fuckers hoodwinked, and that shit is BRILLIANT. My hope is that he wins the nom and the presidency and to sit back and watch as all the shit he said he was gonna do...doesn't get done and people get mad @ him and turn on him his 101st day in office. It'll crack my shit up.
Hillary, give it up. You ran the worst campaign that you could have ever run and will go down as the worst campaign EVAH ran. OMG I wouldn't pick Hillary to run a campaign for a toddler in daycare. OMG, she got played like a 3 dollar bill with my dog's picture on it. Her campaign sucked, her campaign leadership sucked, her campaign staff sucked, her PR sucked, her commercials sucked, I don't think there was anything that didn't suck. She sucked.

New color $5 bills come out today
WASHINGTON - Abraham Lincoln is getting a little color in his cheeks. New $5 bills bearing the gaunt visage of the nation's 16th president — but with some touches of color added — are making their way to banks and cash registers near you.
The bill goes into circulation Thursday. That's when the Federal Reserve, the supplier of the nation's cash, starts shipping the bills to banks, which send them to businesses and eventually into the hands of people in this country and beyond.
Fittingly, the new bill will be spent for the first time on Thursday at the gift shop of President Lincoln's Cottage located on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in northwest Washington.
It's the latest in a series of redesigned notes aimed at foiling phony-money makers, who over the years have grown increasingly sophisticated.

The network, along with 20th Century Fox, is currently developing a spinoff of its enduringly popular Family Guy to revolve around Peter Griffin's bathtub-loving, accident-prone neighbor, Cleveland Brown.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new animated series, tentatively titled Cleveland, will be coming from the same comic minds that brought Stewie & Co. into the mainstream, with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, former Simpsons writer and American Dad exec producer Rich Appel and Family Guy writer-producer, not to mention the voice of Cleveland himself, Mike Henry, on board to write the new show.

, Obama's bitter rival for the Democrats' presidential nomination, has long complained that the young is getting a free ride from journalists in thrall to his promise of change.
"Obama is the new story this year and reporters love novel plotlines," said Darrell West, a political scientist and media expert atin .
"But as it gets closer to the nomination, there is going to be more scrutiny of him. Reporters are going to examine his statements, his votes and his background," he told AFP.Some Obama supporters fret already that his campaign has the trappings of a messianic cult, as thousands upon thousands pack auditoriums to bask in his uplifting oratory.
"Obamaphilia has gotten creepy,"Joel Stein wrote. "The best we Obamaphiles can do is to refrain from embarrassing ourselves."

WASHINGTON - told Congress Thursday the economy is deteriorating and signaled a readiness to keep on lowering a key interest rate to shore things up.
"The outlook for the economy has worsened in recent months, and the downside risks to growth have increased," Bernanke said. "To date, the largest economic effects of the financial turmoil appear to have been on the housing market, which, as you know, has deteriorated significantly over the past two years or so."Click here to get more of this disaster story.
Bernanke better tell his boy Chimpy cuz that fucker sill thinks milk costs a buck a gallon and that we're all payin $1.42 for gas and shit.

the most organised shanty town on earthwelcome to dignity village, inc.
pre-2001, the residents of dignity village in portland, oregon, were part of a mobile ‘tent city’ founded by 8 local homeless people desperate to find some kind of semi-permanent shelter. in 2001, following much campaigning and media support, portland city council agreed to allow the camp legal campground status on the basis that they move to an area called sunderland yard, thus securing dignity village’s short-term future. since then the 60 or so residents have impressively created their own self-regulating mini-city with help from the surrounding community.
dignity village’s features include:
- its own village council with board of directors and other elected officials
- non-profit organisation status
- its own website, dignityvillage.org
- internet access
- communal television room
- 24 hour village security
- 5 fundamental rules which must be adhered to by residents…Check it out @ Deputy Dog.org

Obama said he would not back such a move, although he has been distressed by the "loose ethical standards, the secrecy and incompetence" of a "variety of characters" in the administration.-----snip
"I think you reserve impeachment for grave, grave breaches, and intentional breaches of the president's authority," he said.
"I believe if we began impeachment proceedings we will be engulfed in more of the politics that has made Washington dysfunction," he added. "We would once again, rather than attending to the people's business, be engaged in a tit-for-tat, back-and-forth, non-stop circus."
Obama, son of a Kenyan father and American mother, spoke at a weekly constituent breakfast he sponsors with Illinois' other senator, Dick Durbin. He was asked about impeachment.
Click here for the full story
My take on this. Is that Obama knows he can't win wanting or favoring impeachment, so he's not for it. Which means he is politicising it for his goal of winning. Just like his vote to continue funding the war or saying he wouldn't have voted for the IWR. You and I both know he would have either voted for the IWR or been absent on that day.
- Ripping the party apart and she will get the, "I told you so."
- If she loses the GE she will get the, "I told you so."
- If she wins and we lose congress she will get the, "I told you so."
- If she's Obama's VP and Obama loses the GE she will get the, "I told you so."
- If she doesn't do well she will get the, "I told you so."
- If she wins the GE and we keep congress and she doesn't win 2 terms she will get the, "I told you so."
Because the Obama folks will take it to their graves that Hillary ruined it. So I say no to a combined ticket. Hillary will be blamed for the loss.
MARK MY WORDS.
"Euros Accepted" signs pop up in New York City
NEW YORK (Reuters) - In the latest example that the U.S. dollar just ain't what it used to be, some shops in New York City have begun accepting euros and other foreign currency as payment for merchandise.
"We had decided that money is money and we'll take it and just do the exchange whenever we can with our bank," Robert Chu, owner of East Village Wines, told Reuters television.
The increasingly weak U.S. dollar, once considered the king among currencies, has brought waves of European tourists to New York with money to burn and looking to take advantage of hugely favorable exchange rates.---snip

The sunscreen that you dutifully slather on before a swim on the beach may be protecting your body—but a new study finds that the chemicals are also killing coral reefs worldwide.
Four commonly found sunscreen ingredients can awaken dormant viruses in the symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae that live inside reef-building coral species.
The researchers estimate that 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen wash off swimmers annually in oceans worldwide, and that up to 10 percent of coral reefs are threatened by sunscreen-induced bleaching.
The study appeared online in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

Second, how did the little shit get dressed all by himself? That's the key. I hid his grey sweat suit so I guess he picked the only one he could find. See, Onyx thinks he's the bitches boy in his grey and black sweat suit. He struts around like he's all that, so much so I had to hide it.
Third, voter ID act my ass. I bought Onyx a fake dog tag ID that looks like a real GA ID. Looks like the idiots @ the polling joint took it.
All I know is the little shit came home with one of those tacky ass, "I'm a Georgia Voter" sticker. Now he thinks he's a tough shit.

But will I get that 6 minutes back? After going there will I feel better or worse? Are they serving rum drinks while you vote? Are the fucking little brats there? Will the brats piss me off skipping to and from their classrooms and shit? Will I have to stand in line next to their annoying parents who piss me off just by being alive?
All these questions need to be answered before I consider hauling my nappy ass out to vote.
AND YES, imy ass is nappy. I haven't had a relaxer in months. I wanna go O'natural...
Oh and another thing. With my hair being so fucking nappy I don't want to leave the house anyway. So that just about seals the voting thing.
I just don't care.
I don't give a fuck.

United Adds $25 Fee for 2nd Bag
This is bullshit. I blame Bush. Just look @ the economy, gas prices, etc.
Bush sucks big sweaty donkey balls people. If you voted for his ignorant evil ass you're an idiot.
If you support a candidate and you give them your hard earned money...and they fuck up. They owe you some money.
That's how I feel. Let's use Hillary's campaign for example. OMG they have FUCK UP on speed dial over there. I think her campaign owes their supporters some fucking money. Visa or Master card prepaid cards for 20 bucks a piece should do the trick. Maybe $20 off a $100 Gap purchase or something. Ohhh maybe some Starbucks gift certificates or $20 off your next cell phone bill or something; ANYTHING. But she owes the people who supported her big time.
Boy, did she have the world fooled. She campaigns so bad I wouldn't let her plan a grade school class presidential campaign. Just sayin.
Friday, February 1, 2008
The Hillary Campaign Sucks. Whomever she has leading that shit sucks. Whomever she has leading the day-to-day sucks. Whomever she has writing her speeches...SUCKS.
She's getting played into the ground by Obama and his camp. If it weren't so sad it'd be funny as FUCK. I feel sorry for Clinton supporters because they didn't sign up to be attached to a shitty campaign. They signed up to at least have a chance. To back a possible winner. Shit, they ended up backing a lame horse with no feet.
I feel for y'all. That's why I said after Wesley Clark ran for President in 2k4...I'd never pick a candidate in the primary again. Cuz, gettin your ass handed to you on a daily basis sucks.
Y'all will learn. I hope. Just wait until after the nomination and support the party. That way you'll never get your spirit crushed.
Wednesday, January 30, 2008
Yeah, I'm talkin to you...only if you are the type of fuck up who will decide to sit out if your perfect candidate doesn't get the Democratic nomination. If that ain't you...then I'm not talkin to you, so go get some Starbucks and chill, better yet read my blog archives.
So, if you're so goddamned pure and the candidate isn't pure enough and you decide that it is 'smarter' to sit @ home and not vote...
If the Democrats don't win, you're the reason. Because you're a selfish asshole.
I just feel I had to say that because apparently some jackasses are too stupid to recognize how important this election is. Yeah, they'd rather act like jerks and pricks and such and ensure a GOP victory.
I'll go so far as to say Gore and Kerry didn't win. Because of the jackass Democrats, Liberals, and Progressives who voted green cuz they thought they were so fuckin pure.

Here's what you need to do.
Call a press conference and say.
I acknowledge my campaign practices have been off mark and can be perceived as negative.
I'd like to take full responsibility for it and apologise to my supporters.
She needs to also say that she's decided to campaign on her own. She's a big girl and though she is happy that her husband has been an enthusiastic campaigner he may have stepped over bounds on some occasions. With that said he'll be taking a back seat. She should also say this should lay to rest rumors that a woman can't run for president without a man...because she has, can and will.
She needs to say that issues is where things stand and where she will take on Obama and win. Then she needs to list some issues where she feels she has the closest feel on the pulse of America.
She needs to say from here on out. She will have an eye first hand on what is said and done on her behalf and mistakes will no longer be made.
Can someone get this to her campaign please.

Is no one bothered by this? Are Obama supporters so blind to the game he is playing? Obama is the Anti-Clinton to them only. They aren't looking at the issues. Because if they did look @ the issues objectively the would see that Obama and Clinton are basically 2 peas in the same pod.
Obama making less than a quarter of Senate votes
Wednesday, January 23, 2008
Here is a slice...
- Clinton falsely accused Obama of saying he "really liked the ideas of the Republicans" including private Social Security accounts and deficit spending. Not true. The entire 49-minute interview to which she refers contains no endorsement of private Social Security accounts or deficit spending, and Obama specifically scorned
calls for tax cuts.
- Obama falsely denied endorsing single-payer government health insurance when he first ran for the Senate, saying, "I never said that we should try to go ahead and get single-payer." But in fact he gave a speech in 2003 saying, "I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care program."
- Edwards misleadingly claimed, "I was the one who beat " in a recent CNN poll. The problem is that there is a more recent CNN poll, one that shows either Clinton or Obama beating McCain and doesn't include Edwards.

LOST THEIR GOT DAMNED MINDS...
Where the fuck did the objectivity go. I Remember when they used to spout on about how objective they were and how they loved intelligent discussion and shit like that. Now they've become circle shooting, shit slinging, maniacs.
Goes to show how objective and intellectual they actually were and are. They make me sick. Make me embarrassed to be a Democrat. Though I thing some are TROLLS and others are sock puppets posting as the supporter of one candidate just to make that candidate, which they really don't support look like shit.
I don't know people. Just watch it with a grain of salt. Thank God the masses don't evn know DU or we'd be in big ass fucking trouble.

Reminds me that Bush loss the popular vote but still won the electoral vote in 2000. We were hopping mad about that. But now it is o.k I guess in this instance.
Is this what it is going to be now. If we win it is all good. If we lose then we really won but they cheated.
WTF. When is recess? Teacher can I go to the bathroom? Is my mom picking me up after school? Come on guys, graduate from grade school. People. You're making me sick. It looks stupid and frankly you are making your chosen candidate look worse.
Yes, I'm aware that there are assholes apart of every campaign. I just PRAY (Yes, I said 'pray', what of it?) That it is just the hypersensitive DU posters that are like this. I hope in the real world that assholes are few and far between. I doubt it. But a gal can dream, can't she?
Thank God the posters on DU represent just a tiny speck on a turd of a flea. Thank God DU is not what the entire Democratic party represents. I don't think I could take it. Sometimes I cannot tell the difference between DUers and Freepers where hatred of Hillary is concerned. I can barely take the board sometimes. But I will say the loud mouth assholes seem to represent a small portion of the posters but they appear to be the majority.
My suggestion is to ignore all candidate supporters who act like assholes. That'll make DU a better place to post. Hopefully I'll be back after a nominee is chosen.

Chris Matthews Backs Off 'Nasty' Remark on Clinton
Friday, January 18, 2008; Page C01
For 10 days, the "Hardball" host had doggedly insisted he was just reciting a bit of history when he said on the air that "the reason she's a U.S. senator, the reason she's a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around."
But protests against those and other remarks by Matthews reached a peak yesterday when the presidents of such groups as the National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority and National Women's Political Caucus sent a joint letter of complaint to NBC News President Steve Capus.
OK, so I ask again. Why is Chris Matthews still allowed on TeeVee? Think of the all the Republican politicians who have been trippin the night fantastic, horizontal mambo dancing with people other than their family values spouse? Where is the disdain for them? Where is it?Yeah Chris, where the fuck is it?
